Why wait for Memorial Day? Here at the CS office, we say summer starts on May 5, and Cinco de Mayo may be our all-time favorite holiday. We’ll do anything for a mouth-watering margarita on a warm spring day, and can’t get enough of Mexican-inspired ruffled tops and embroidered blouses. After hearing about Jenn’s recent vacation to Hotel San Cristóbal, we wanted to transport ourselves straight to Mexico to celebrate Cinco this year. But instead of breaking out our passports, we found the perfect location for our fiesta right in the heart of Austin. We whipped up roasted veggie tacos and prickly pear margaritas that made our taste buds sing, and learned how to play a classic Mexican board game.
